This is a very tall and slender lamp but with regal qualities. The taller lamp has an all metal rod that connects the marble base for a stately and dignified look. The metal is finished in fine brass and the square base is white marble with some veining. An elegant combination! Use this taller brass and white marble lamp on narrow consoles and buffets. The lamp has one light at 100w maximum and uses a cord switch for convenience. The shade is a vanilla linen boxed square in a smaller size with a spire finial above. Note that the lamp is turned on in the photo. Shade size: 10" wide x 10" deep x 8" high. Total lamp height: 40" high.
